Circuit Rider-st,LP,1980,USA

Great private almost unknown heavy stoned psych LP. Excellent dark mystical atmosphere mixed with an outlaw biker's feeling and the voice...ah that voice was always a start of many rumours...reminding very much characteristic Jim Morrison's voice(like in Phantom's Divine Comedy same title LP from1974) this enforced the urban myth that Morrison's still alive.In some parts reminding also stoned YaHoWa 13 on a motorcycle race on acid. Also the year of release is not sure (some say it is 1971),but i believe 1980 is right. I remeber choosing to buy it back in 1984-85 only because of the wonderfull sleeve and when gone to pay the guy from the record store spoke with the best words about it saying too that it was Jim Morrison singing(i was only 17 years old then!).This enforced me to buy it and when i got homeand put it on the turntable i realised how right he was...magnificent LP.
